  • Patent number: 10397579
    Abstract: A position coordinate difference computing unit (5a to 5c) calculates position coordinate differences between position coordinates of the output digital signals and position coordinates of the input digital signals adjacent to the position coordinates. An FIR coefficient memory (13a to 13c) stores FIR coefficients of an FIR-LPF and outputs FIR coefficients corresponding to position coordinate differences between a fixed number of the output digital signals adjacent to the position coordinates of the output digital signals and the output digital signals. A control unit (11) supplies a group of the FIR coefficients and a group of the input digital signals corresponding to the respective position coordinate differences to the parallel FIR calculator (4) in predetermined order when the position coordinate differences corresponding to two or more different output digital signals are concurrently computed.
